An influential Democratic senator is now backing the push to restore insurance plans canceled due to ObamaCare, on the heels of a blunt critique from Bill Clinton on President Obama’s handling of the health care law’s rocky rollout.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Tuesday she is co-sponsoring a bill by Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., that would force insurance companies to reinstate canceled policies that Obama repeatedly vowed that people could keep.
Adding to the pressure on the administration, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee also is hearing testimony Wednesday morning on the troubled HealthCare.gov website. Amid a report in The Washington Post that claims the site may not be fully functional by the end of the month, despite the president’s promises, lawmakers will hear from top technology officials, including U.S. Chief Technology Officer Todd Park.
